    Besides looking cool do the truck springs do anything differently than the non truck version?

    Sprung or Un-sprung

    Are you referring to the trucks with the molded on springs as opposed to the real mini springs such as Kadee uses? The real springs do function to make the cars handle better on rough trackwork. ( none of us have rough track; however.)

    That would have to be some pretty bad track work to make those little springs work. :)

    Next time you have a chance to examine a Kadee truck, play around with the springs. They are quite light and do function.
